A new lecturer has started at the department of Hydraulic Engineering. Arne van der Hout will work part time at the section of Ports and Waterways. In this news article he introduces himself.   

Mr. van der Hout holds a MSc. degree in Maritime Engineering. Previously, he has worked as researcher at TU Delft at the faculty of Ship Hydromechanics and he now joined the section Ports and Waterways. Next to this, he works as senior researcher/advisor at Deltares as a staff member of the Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering department. He works on various hydrodynamic topics related to nautical activities in and around harbours, waterways and hydraulic structures. His field of expertise includes ship manoeuvring, moored-ship behaviour, wave penetration in harbours and entrance channels, passing ships effects, ship-waterway interaction, and hydraulics of navigational locks.
